England head coach Eddie Jones says there is no limit to what ‘kamikaze kids’ Tom Curry and Sam Underhill can achieve when they play together.Curry, 21, and Bath's Underhill, 23, are open-side flankers, but Jones has named the Sale man to start on the blind-side in England's World Cup warm-up against Ireland this afternoon."There's no ceiling for them," he said."As long as they keep the right work ethic, they'll keep getting better."Playing two guys who are pretty good at the breakdown might give us an advantage in that area."
